Re-launch of the European project of Communities on the Net



The European team of Brothers Today meet in Champville

21/05/2019: Lebanon

From the 8th to the 10th of May, a meeting was held in the community of the Marist school of Champville (Lebanon) by the European Team of Brothers Today, comprising  Brothers  António Leal (Compostela), Roberto di Troia (West Central Europe), Michel Morel (Hermitage), Ernesto Tendero (Ibérica), Aureliano García (Mediterránea) and Tony León (Secretariat Brothers Today). 

One of the objectives of this third meeting was to evaluate the course and to revise and formalise the way forward in the triennium 2019-2022, for the animation of the life of the Brothers through formation, favouring a closer relationship among the provinces from the European Region. 

A strong point for reflection was the recovery of the European Project of Communities on the Net, after the positive momentum offered at the meeting in El Escorial, in August of 2018, to revitalize community life with mutual support among the communities that have decided to integrate themselves in the Net from the objectives that have been already established. 

Especially significant has been the meeting with the Fratelli community and learning at first hand the prodigious and  praiseworthy work being carried out with the refugee children and their families. To see the faces of the boys and girls, the dedication of the Brothers  and educators from an inter-congregational, inter-cultural, inter-national and inter-religious  perspective, in a precarious atmosphere, but where love generates creativity so that everyone grows and feels loved, helps us to better understand the message of the last General Chapter. 

The participants have discussed places and dates for the next meetings, seeing it interesting to the group to come closer to more houses of Brothers  and to be aware of the different situations in the Provinces of the continent. 

It is important to highlight the atmosphere of fraternity and hospitality of the Brothers  and lay Marists of the Lebanon that have made the participants feel at home.
